For this project they took a global perspective, asking nine female historians, writers, and curators around the globe to recommend ten photobooks, six of which had to be be from their region; the remaining ten books included in How We See were selected by the female members of 10×10. The final lineup includes celebrated books by Laia Abril, Germaine Krull, Diane Arbus, Olivia Arthur, Sophie Calle, Maya Rochat, Zanele Muholi, Dayanita Singh, and Dragana Juriši?, among many others. The goal is not to isolate these books, but to closely examine their content and design as a means of understanding their place within a more inclusive photobook practice. “Our projects are always shaped around many conversations and brainstorming sessions, as we try to define overlooked areas and bring fresh ideas,” says Olga Yatskevich.
